  1. This is where I am. Just when I think I've had enough of Trump's belligerent routine, I remember the Democrats 2020 platform (shown below), and I have to go back to Trump.
  2. If I have to pinpoint a specific turning point for me, it was probably when King Ezekiel and the Kingdom was introduced. That was when the story went from something very serious and dark in the nature of desperate people, to something downright silly.
  3. They finally ended the comic, so this will definitely be the final season for TWD. I'm hard-pressed to think of a series that was this big and that nose-dived so completely. There was a time when TWD was bigger than Game of Thrones, popularity-wise. A total phenomenon. Now I don't know a single person that watches or gives two shits about it. They certainly went astray somewhere with the writing, and it happened before the lead actors left. Sorry to revive this thread, but I'm just curious about what killed this show for you, specifically? Too much plot armor for the big characters? Too many characters/storylines overall? Just stupid things happening? Or what?
  4. I remember about 15 years ago when Texas Democrats did the same thing...fled to New Mexico for about 2 months. I seem to remember it being effective in blocking some legislation, but hurting them really badly in the polls https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_Eleven
  5. I would agree that airstrikes killing a bunch of civilians isn't a proportional response to them shooting down an unmanned drone. The same people (NYT, CNN) that are trying to egg Trump on and bait him into taking military action would immediately call for his impeachment when a bunch of civilians are killed. CNN already has camera crews ready to film the crying Iranian families, I'm sure. They'll call him weak, corrupt, whatever..they would do that regardless. Toughen up the sanctions even further, and save the airstrikes for when an American life is lost. We don't need another war right now over a piece of equipment.
  6. I listened to him. As far as the attendence, I guess that's what I get for trusting the untrustworthy NBC News: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/jon-stewart-lashes-out-mia-lawmakers-9-11-victims-fund-n1016356 "The hearing, however, had not been slated to take place before the whole Judiciary Committee — it was being held before the subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. The subcommittee has 14 members, compared with the full committee, which has 41 members. Two of the 14 members, Reps. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., and Guy Reschenthaler, R-Penn., were absent. Both are co-sponsors of the bill."
  7. Love Jon too, but he wasn't exactly accurate on this. I was reading earlier where the room appeared empty because they used the full chamber, and there are only 14 people on the subcommittee. Only two people were missing: Swalwell who is campaigning, and one other. The bill easily passed on voice vote, so what exactly was he mad about?
  8. They're saying on PFT that Texans may go without a GM at all this year. Sounds good to me. I would prefer they hire Ray Farmer, but no GM would be my 2nd choice.
  9. https://www.yahoo.com/news/fear-anger-border-guards-tighten-net-southern-mexico-074003019.html I truly don't think we'll see the 1,000+-person caravans anymore. Mexico can't allow that now. Plus, the main organizers and sponsors are in jail or soon will be. The media can spin it however they want, but this change is due to the events of the past week. So, Trump's tactic made the difference.
  10. NYT has given it their best shot. I laughed hysterically through this entire bullshit article. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/07/us/politics/trump-tariffs-mexico.html
  11. Clear win on this one for Trump, no two ways about it. Caravan organizers arrested and accounts frozen, Mexican military to Guatamalan border, asylum seekers have to wait in Mexico...can't ask for much more than that. The art of the deal.
  12. https://www.latimes.com/world/mexico-americas/la-fg-mexico-migrant-caravan-20190606-story.html Apparently, a simple tariff threat was all it took to get the Mexican government moving. Should have done this 2 years ago. You know it kills the LA Times to have to say this. "Mexican authorities have dramatically stepped up law enforcement pressure against Central American migrants in recent days in an effort to stave off a trade war with the United States. As Mexican diplomats have met with U.S. officials in Washington this week to try to head off President Trump’s threats of a punitive tariff on all Mexican imports, authorities in Mexico have signaled that the country is serious about curbing a recent surge in migrants to the U.S. border."
  13. Toyota simply cannot be beaten as far as value and reliability. All you gotta do is change the oil and put gas in it. I have a Porsche for the fun of it, but I pretty much won't buy anything other than a Toyota for a daily vehicle. They're that good. I'm gonna go from a 9 year old FJ Cruiser to a 1 or 2 year old 4-Runner within the next year or so.
  14. Not sure about that...good question. What I do know is that you can draw a straight line from the decision to let Moon walk and start Carlson in '94 (disastrously) to the Oilers leaving Houston. They really thought Carlson was ready. The Oilers destiny was unbelievably changed by that decision....Moon played extremely well for 4 more years after they let him go. They could/should have kept him at the time. They would have had at least a decent '94 season...so no Fisher hire mid-season, no 2-14, no McNair, no Tennessee, no Super Bowl, and everything else. The stadium demand AFTER a 2-14 season with no QB is what killed the Oilers. A stadium demand after a 9-7 season is totally different story, even with the playoff chokes.
  15. If I remember correctly, Moon dislocated his thumb in that game, and Cody Carlson came in and made an ass of himself.
